Can We Stop Politicizing The Death Of Soldiers?

So, keeping it a buck, my wife believes that I should run for office one day. However; there’s one glaring issue, son: I hate politics. I hate politics because it always gets in the way of human decency, man. Elected officials will take ANY situation and twist it into some bipartisan affair. Frankly, it’s disgusting, fam. It’s even more disgusting when this type of fuckery affects Gold Star families. Look, we argue about EVERYTHING in this fucking country. Can we leave dead soldiers out of it, bruh?

Ok, all of the tomfoolery began after four American soldiers died in Niger, West Africa. Now, details are still murky, but it appears that a 12-man Army team was ambushed by 50 ISIS soldiers. In the aftermath, Sgt. La David Johnson, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright laid dead from the confrontation. Under any circumstance, this is a terrible outcome for a soldier. However; the ensuing political firefight has made my blood boil, son.

Now, once word got out about the tragedy, the conversation evolved into whether or not Donald Trump called the families of the fallen soldiers. From there, he incorrectly asserted that previous presidents, especially Barack Obama, didn’t speak with Gold Star families. Next, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson alleged that Trump told La David Johnson’s wife that he “knew what he signed up for.” After that, Wilson, Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly got into a debate about who was telling the truth.

Listen, if Trump really said that to Johnson’s widow, then he’s the lowest form of scum. But, I already knew that about him, man. Shit, this behavior wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest, fam. The problem is the fact that the death of these men is being used to make a political statement. I mean, have we no fucking shame, bruh? These guys literally laid down their lives for this country. Can they get a little fucking respect, people?! This ain’t the damn time to be arguing about who said what to who and when. Honor these fucking soldiers, son!

In the end, I hate politics, man. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, fam. Ultimately, people want to make a point as opposed to being right. Honestly, I can’t take the constant bullshit, bruh. *Sigh* I guess this really is politics as usual, folks. LC out.

Eminem Ethered Donald Trump

So, to be clear, I’m not going to spend any time talking about how legendary Eminem is, son. At this point, if someone out there doesn’t know that Em is a Top 3 rapper of all time, then I can’t help that person, man. With that being said, I’m always hyped when he wakes up from hibernation, fam. These days, if he’s dropping any bars, then he usually has something to say. All in all, that’s exactly what happened during last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards. The Detroit luminary decided to hit the cyphers and completely obliterated Donald Trump.

Now, I won’t lie, bruh. I’m not going to sit here and dissect everything Em said. Frankly, it would be easier for everyone to just listen to the verse for themselves. In any case, the freestyle is called “The Storm” and Em went hamburger batshit crazy on y’alls president. Essentially, he touched on damn near every bit of fuckery of Trump’s campaign and presidency. Ultimately, I’ll just let Em speak for himself, son. By and by, folks can watch the video ether below. Viva la Eminem! LC out.

Get ESPN The F*ck Outta Here!

So, let me get straight to it, son. ESPN can eat a massive dick, son. I mean, they’re definitely showing the world their true colors, man. I guess, in their eyes, the First Amendment means nothing, fam. Like, free speech must be some imaginary concept, bruh. Shit, from the way things have played out, SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill clearly isn’t entitled to voicing her opinion. All I know is, Hill needs to take her talents to somewhere she’ll be properly appreciated. All in all, ESPN is NOT the place, folks.

Now, for those who missed all of the fuckery, let me give a brief rundown. The nonsense started when Hill spoke out against Donald Trump on Twitter. She correctly called Trump a White Supremacist and blamed him for the rise of bigotry in this country. Listen, if anyone thinks she was off base, just remember Trump’s response to Charlottesville. Despite the fact that supremacists killed Heather Heyer, he still said that there were “fine people” on all sides. Look, if that ain’t sucking up to racists than I don’t know what is, son.

In any case, because of her statements, Hill became a political target. Trump’s entire administration tried to make her a punching bag in an effort to get her fired. Now, since ESPN is a bunch of bitches, they released a statement condemning Hill’s tweets. With that being said, she was effectively put on warning. However; since Hill is a real one, she refused to be silenced by the powers that be.

Moving on, here’s where the tomfoolery came to a head, man. So, Jerry Jones decided to be a typical White dude in power and threaten his Dallas Cowboys players. According to him, if any man kneels for the National Anthem, then they won’t play. Keep in mind, just the other week, this clowncake kneeled with the players before a game. Now, he’s trying to pull rank by putting pressure on his employees. Look, all I want to know is, when did Jerry Jones become a beacon of moral authority? Fam, ain’t that the same man that took these pictures? Ok, yeah, I thought so, bruh.

Anyway, in the wake of Jones’ hypocrisy, Hill suggested that people should boycott Cowboys advertisers. Frankly, that move would be a real way to affect the status quo. By and by, for her troubles, ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks for violating their social media policy. Basically, this was their way of shutting her up for speaking against their corporate interests. Listen, we all know how the game goes, son. Anytime a Black person speaks up, the people in control need to assert their dominance. Keeping it a buck, Hill became another victim of the need to maintain “order.”

In the end, ESPN is proving that they only want a certain type of Blackness. They want to exploit our swag but don’t give a fuck about our pain. Now, I know Hill worked tirelessly to succeed, but I hope she learned a valuable lesson here: these corporations want us to be caricatures. They want us to be docile servants who should be thankful for our positions. Ultimately, fuck ESPN and all other organizations who profit from our talents but remain silent about our anguish. LC out.

P.S. Michael Smith is a G for the way he’s standing up for his co-host. Salute, brother. That is all.

Puerto Rico, Come Get Your Paper Towel

Fam, is this dude serious? Like, is Donald Trump ACTUALLY serious, son?! I mean, is it even possible for a man to have less decency and humanity? Look, after ALL of the bullshit he’s said about Puerto Rico and Carmen Yulín Cruz, y’alls president still went down there and acted an ass. Shit, just look at the embedded photo, man. This clown actually threw paper towel, basketball-style, into a group of Hurricane Maria survivors. *Sigh* At this point, everything this idiot does is stranger than fiction, fam.

Now, for those who missed it, during his visit to Puerto Rico, Donald Trump behaved like Donald Trump. Essentially, he turned another presidential endeavor into a circus, son. So, instead of actually empathizing with citizens who’ve been dealing with grave hardships, he made light of their pain. What part of no power or clean water says “let’s throw paper towels at people”? Good Lord, does this man have ANY couth at all? Does he have ANY moral compass to guide his actions? I truly don’t understand why it’s a CONSTANT shitshow whenever he’s around, man.

In the end, I don’t know what else to say here. 45 is simply a terrible human being, fam. All I can say is, I really don’t get how people still defend him. Look, he doesn’t even have an inkling of decorum, bruh. *Sigh* I truly, TRULY wish I could stop writing about this fool, son. However; he keeps engaging in massive amounts of fuckery, man. So, I guess the show must go on, folks. LC out.

Does Donald Trump Know Puerto Rico Is Part Of America?

So, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? I mean, all three places were battered by hurricanes. Also, all three places house American citizens. Look, whether it was Hurricane Harvey, Irma or Maria, each land was devastated by Mother Nature. So, I ask again, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? The fact that Donald Trump doesn’t give a fuck about the citizens in Puerto Rico.

Now, for those who missed it, Trump spent this past weekend blaming Puerto Rico for their own misfortunes. Instead of commenting on the fact that fellow Americans don’t have power or running water, he talked about the land’s debt. Instead of heeding Carmen Yulín Cruz‘s pleas for help, he criticized her leadership and falsely claimed that relief efforts were great. Once again, instead of having genuine compassion for people, Trump turned another tragedy into politics.

Fam, Trump actually had the audacity to say that Puerto Rico wants everything done for them. Shit, did he say that to the Houston residents who begged Joel Osteen for shelter? Did he say that to Miami residents who watched South Beach get damn near washed away? Nah, Trump only took that tone with the Brown people, son. Look, no one can tell me that race isn’t a factor when these people need help just like any other citizen. All in all, Puerto Ricans did nothing to deserve such blatant disrespect, man.

In the end, I’m surprised that Trump can still surprise me. I mean, the lack of regard for people under his jurisdiction is staggering, fam. Then again, he’s probably like the 46% of Americans who don’t even know that Puerto Ricans are fellow citizens. *Sigh* It’s Monday morning and my head already hurts, bruh. I’m gonna go now. LC out.

Don’t Forget What Colin Kaepernick Actually Kneeled For

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Colin Kaepernick‘s movement is starting to become convoluted, man. I mean, with all of the noise, debates and arguments, the original catalyst for kneeling is getting lost. With that being said, allow me to remind everyone what Kaepernick was protesting for. All in all, regardless of anyone else’s intentions, Kaepernick wanted to bring attention to racial injustice in America.

Now, before I continue, let me reiterate something I’ve stated before. Look, kneeling during the National Anthem has NOTHING to do with disrespecting the troops. Frankly, our brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces were never part of this conversation, fam. Real talk, the motive behind the protest was ALWAYS to bring attention to systemic racism, bigotry and police brutality. Listen, when we look at all of the Black victims of state-sanctioned murder, our anger shouldn’t be surprising, bruh.

Moving on, when detractors bring up the troops, they’re literally just trying to create a diversion. On the real, I have family members AND friends who have either previously served or currently serve in the military. By and by, their sacrifice has never been in question here. Keeping it a buck, anyone who is willing to put their lives on the line for their country should be celebrated. All I know is, nothing and no one can take that away from them, son.

All in all, kneeling for the anthem was never designed to disrespect them. Shit, if people cared for the troops as much as they say they do, then why don’t they pay more attention to the mental and physical issues of our veterans? In addition, why don’t more people pay attention to number of homeless veterans around the country? Honestly, folks are more interested in sound bites than real change.

In any case, when it comes to the anthem, the hypocrisy needs to stop, man. Listen, I’ve detailed all of this on my blog before. Fam, I’ve already spoken about Francis Scott Key, the writer of The Star-Spangled Banner. I’ve already talked about how he was a slave owner and an anti-abolitionist. I’ve already mentioned that there are more verses to the song that DIRECTLY reference slavery. Good Lord, bruh, I truly don’t understand why White people think Black people should embrace that fucking song. It was LITERALLY written by a man who wanted to deny us rights! Please, get the FUCK outta here!

Lastly, I’m calling bullshit on all of the NFL owners who’ve been kneeling with their players. Listen, am I supposed to believe that the same owners who wouldn’t give Kaepernick a job actually give a fuck about our rights? Hell, didn’t Dez Bryant previously say that Jerry Jones wasn’t with the shits? Now I’m supposed to believe he’s down for the cause? Bruh, how stupid do these billionaires think we are? Ultimately, all of these teams took a knee and locked arms as an affront to Donald Trump. This was NEVER done in support of equality. Meaning, they can take their bullshit gesture and shove it, fam!

In the end, I became more and more pissed as I wrote this article. Look, a protest that started with pure intentions has been grossly bastardized, son. All I can say is, I don’t want the spirit of Kaepernick’s sacrifice to get lost in the shuffle. Listen, that man risked it all to bring attention to the plight of Black and Brown people. All I know is, I don’t want politics and bipartisanship to dilute the message. Don’t fall for the okie doke, people. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Hates Sports

So, just in case anyone forgot, Donald Trump is a fucking joke, son. I mean, with all of the tomfoolery happening in our country, why does he consistently focus on the wrong things? Shit, Kim Jong-un is trying to nuke us all, but Trump would rather talk about the NFL. Healthcare is still being debated in Congress, but he’d rather take shots at Stephen Curry. Man, this dude has ZERO understanding of the nature of his office. Honestly, when will this man realize that his job isn’t a reality show? More importantly, will we all still be alive by the time he figures it out?

Now, for those who missed it, Trump has been on a tear recently. First, during a speech in Huntsville, Alabama, he called football players who don’t stand for the National Anthem “son[s] of bitch[es].” In addition, he demanded that these players be fired, regardless of the fact that they’re exercising their First Amendment rights. Next, he set his crosshairs on Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Since Curry expressed that he wasn’t interested in visiting the White House, Trump took it upon himself to “uninvite” the team. Needless to say, the Warriors organization didn’t give a flying fuck, man.

In any case, as expected, everyone with sense called Trump out for his idiocy. LeBron James went hamburger on him for even thinking that rescinding an invitation was a power move. Look, logic states that a person can’t uninvite someone who wasn’t even planning on going. Meaning, Trump is a clown for thinking that anyone cares about his little temper tantrum. Real talk, a speech isn’t going to make a team visit the White House and it isn’t going to stop players from protesting racial injustice.

Listen, the fact of the matter is, Colin Kaepernick started a movement, son. Now, the powers that be thought that getting rid of him would stop the momentum. However; as more players from different leagues get onboard, the fight just keeps getting stronger, man. Hell, just the other day, Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel for the anthem. All in all, players are determining that they won’t be silenced by influence and intimidation. Also, more owners and organizations are starting to join the debate, people. The snowball effect is starting to occur.

In the end, maybe Trump should stick to presidential matters. I mean, it’s not like he’s even doing that well, fam. Frankly, he shouldn’t have time to comment on players because he should be focused on doing his job better, bruh. Ultimately, this is yet ANOTHER example of the clowncake that the Electoral College put in office. *Sigh* The fuckery just doesn’t stop, son. LC out.
